PRP CLINICAL & SCIENTIFIC RESOURCES

Up to date PRP resources 

Several clinical studies agree that Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been shown to be effective when used as part of treatment plans in a variety of therapeutic applications including:

 

  • Osteoarthritis: Knee, Shoulder, Hip & Spine Rotator Cuff 
  • Strains & Tears 
  • Tendonitis & Ligament Sprains 
  • Soft Tissue Injuries 
  • Chronic Knee Pain Muscle Strains
  • Pelvic Pain & Instability 
  • Aesthetic Applications 

The procedure is less aggressive and less expensive than surgery and can help to alleviates further degeneration of the tissues with minimal or no scarring. This process uses the patient’s own blood thereby eliminating any chance of rejection response and minimizes the likelihood of infection.

The robust published clinical data demonstrates the use of PRP in multiple therapeutic areas.
